>From my calendar of Shakespearean Insults I find that for today we have:

Woe upon ye, and all such false professors!
(All is Ture [or Henry VIII], 3.1.114-15).

This should be food for thought for most of us.

Some teachers have told me that their students have enjoyed my
Shakespeare parodies.

HAMLET re-written for the Marx Brothers can be found on-line at
http://geocities.com/~jbenz/hamlet.html

KING LEAR re-written for W. C. Fields can be found at
http://geocities.com/~jbenz/lear.html

And MACBETH re-written for Abbott & Costello can be found at
http://geocities.com/~jbenz/macbeth.html

Incidentally, the HAMLET parody is supposed to be performed in New York
City some time this summer, and the MACBETH parody is supposed to be
performed in the Los Angeles area sometime this summer.  I'll post more
information when it becomes available.
